'm working with kids and with aspergers and autism and one thing that struck me is we need to be able on the flip side, so i'm now writing to kids when you are the one that has more of a thick skin, whatever you want to call it, how do you interact with kids who are more sensitive? just how do you do that? how do you recognize the signs when you're around somebody that does calibrate and has a different definition and what bothers them and what doesn't and if we can do that and i'm asking autistic kids and asperger's kids and normal kids and what are the things that trigger these things and what can we do and i want you to know what i am doing right now and i am working with boys and i finished the porn section and honest i'm doing all of it and why do girls send naked pictures and this week we're creating concrete strategies and scenarios so they can picture what to do when they are up either way against these dynamics and if we work together this way and really name it. sometimes kids with aspergers can do things that are off putting. i sat with a kid in a class that put his leg

adam would receive another diagnosis: asperger's, a form of autism that interferes with social interan. >> i want to talk a little bit about the middle school years. because isn't this when we start to hear about adam having problems that go beyond just the diagnosis of sensory integration? >> we were told around middle school... the middle school years. >> right. there was the initial diagnosis, and then the diagnosis of asperger's. >> and that goes to... social isolation, inability to communicate with others. but there's nothing, there's nothing that connects asperger's to the kind of violence we saw at... >> absolutely nothing by itself, absolutely nothing. >> family members have told us that when middle school came upon adam and the whole idea of changing classes and being in the hallways, that was too much for him. >> why? do we know why? >> the noise and the chaos disrupted him, is what we were told. >> so she moves him out of the public school system and into st. rose of lima? >> she didn't move him into parochial school right away. initially she had this special program set up

haired, computer geek. he had problems. he had asperger's. he had a sensory issue where he couldn't process pain. but there were no overt acts of violence until he was 20, christmastime, 2012, and there was this descent. and that's probably the most compelling part of this. >> and alaine griffin, are these warning signs that should have been picked up by any authorities, do you think, or is he one of those that we've seen so many cases of, who slipped below the current radar? >> well, i think if you look at adam's life, you know, he started off in school. there was sort of this -- he was in and out of schools. he was in public school, parochial school for a little while, he was taken out of public school. he went to high school for two years, then he left high school at 16. he went to college for a year, went out of college, went to community college, dropped out the first semester. then he fell off the radar. i think once we had some high school officials tell us that once he fell off the radar and he was no longer sort of, you know, under the jurisdiction of the school, they wer

apparently has asperger's syndro syndrome. how is he tonight? >> reporter: he was transported to the hospital in dothan, a couple of miles down the road. witnesses say when they saw him being taken in, he was sitting upright. the ambulance that he had been riding in, the gurney was being tilted upright. that's a pretty good sign. authorities also say that he physically was fine. of course, many people will wonder mentally how he is six, seven days of that long ordeal. he is back with his family and that's the best medicine of all. >> yeah, it certainly is. we should point out just because of the age of the child, what he has been through, we are not reporting his last name out of concerns for his privacy. marty, appreciate that. >>> we want to dig deeper into what this 5-year-old boy, ethan, might have gone through in the last six days. it is hard to imagine what he went through not to mention what he witnessed during his abduction. he is 5 years old. also what played out in the negotiations and the rescue operation. joining us alabama senator who was with ethan's mother when the call came th

allowed them to pass toys, food, and medicine through a ventilation pipe. ethan is said to have asperger syndrome.>> over the past 24 hours, our communications with the suspect had deteriorated. we were certainly concerned for the safety of the child. i can tell you that i have been to the hospital. i have visited with ethan. he is doing fine. he is laughing, joking, playing, eating -- things you would expect a normal five-year-old to six-year-old young man to do. >> vigils were held each day and night for him. friends made birthday cards. it is his sixth birthday on wednesday. now there is cause for celebration. bbc news, washington.>> they were branded ireland's fallen women. from single women to victims of abuse, thousands were sent to wash away their sins in institutions run by nuns. laumandoline -- magdalene dndries, as they were called. justice may come today when an official report reveals how much successive irish governments knew about this. >> this is her life in the mag dalene laundries, as presented to the outside world -- a place where troubled girls would be cared for. some

from adhd and asperger's's syndrome and we learned that they are able to get crayons and toys and coloring books to him. and when the sheriff relayed the information, he said this. i want to thank mr. dykes for taking care of our boy. that was a direct appeal to mr. dykes, does he have television, are they trying speak to him directly. it's fair to assume they are trying to talk to him, don. >> george will be back with us at 10:00 eastern as we continue to monitor the situation. it's similar to an incident that happened nearly 40 years ago. it happened in california, when three men kidnapped a school bus full of children and their driver and buried them underground inside a moving van trailer in hopes of getting ransom money. they all survived but still feel the effects of it. >>> moving on now, in turkey today, a claim of responsibility for the attack to united states embassy. >> yesterday, in the turkish capitol, a suicide bomber blew himself up and killed a man who worked as a security guard at the embassy. a group has now said that they sent the bomber and that they are ag

speaking, though, what you know of 5-year-olds and aparentally he has aspergers, what are he and his family looking at in terms of recovery? >> it will be hugely variable. think about the whole process. this poor child started with the trauma of seeing this bus driver shot and killed. then being kidnapped, pulled away from his regular routine. a typical 5-year-old child would find this frightening. a child with aspergers, which is a form of autism, where kids often have a certain rigid quality to how they expect to do things, having difficulties with unfamiliar environments, unfamiliar people, and put exactly into that type of placement where they already have a routine level of anxiety when things don't go the way they want and put into a situation like he has, you know, it's very hard to tell how he's going to do. on the one hand, he might get right back to his routine and do absolutely fine. but on the other hand, you know, the anxieties, the trauma, what we call an acute stress disorder even post traumatic stress symptoms, as we just described, can occur. what's really important is, fir

he was a special needs student, that perhaps he suffered from some form of asperger's syndrome. anecdotally, folks who knew the bus driver saying charlie pullman jr. would keep the special needs children at the front of the bus so he could keep an eye on them. if that's the case, that might explain why this kid was targeted, why the gunman selected him as a hostage. perhaps all of the other children were at the back of the bus. i am told the driver had gotten that back door open before he was shot so the kids in the back of the bus it would have been easier for them to get off and this kid would have been an easier target sitting at the front of the bus if what residents are telling us is true that the special needs were kept near the driver so he could care for them. >> this is bob beckel. is there any indication this was a single bunker or was there a series of rooms in this complex? >> our reports that we have been getting is it's a single bunker and there were conflicting reports about the dimensions. we heard 6 by 8 feet and then we heard reports it was slightly larger tha

, you and i talked about asperger's syndrome and it was thought to be a mental illness and one associated with violence. neither one of those things were true, yet that was the prevailing theory for a long time. it's very hard to draw these two things together, but unfortunately, the stigma seems to last for a long time. >> i talked to so many parents who tried to get help for their children before they resort to violence, and they can't get help. >> it's shocking. we always say as physicians, if you recognize these symptoms in your children or in a family member, why didn't you get them help? what did you do about it? the reality is, a lot of them tried. they even take their children to the hospital, sometimes forced to be in a situation where they get their child taken home or they essentially criminalize the child. >> dan, where do you see this? >> it's very important we do what we can to identify the specific mental illnesses that do have a predisposition to violence. you hear conversations about severe depression, about schizophrenia. at the same time, identifying those, w

these people are no different. having asperger's is no different than being left handed. >> which is if it is practiced consistently and effectively is fantastic. the problem is, the budget cuts are a big, big issue. as a parent with two kids who at various points needed assistance, the availability of therapy was much greater several years ago. in every state, it has really come down a lot. with the way we talk about mental illness tends to be, as you said, a very broad umbrella. i'm loathed to talk about adam lanza or sort of speculate on his condition, because there is no way and his mother can't speak to his history now, but i do think it's very important when you are dealing with mental illness to not use the word mental illness repeatedly when you're talking about kids with asburgers or the autism spectrum. that becomes stigmatizing and a big part of the education process in this country. >> when we talk -- also on that note, as maggie mentions, as far as newtown, the n.i.h. reports less than 5% of violent crimes are committed by individuals with mental illness, but there is

. >> josh, there has been a lot of talk that he may have had asperg aspergers. you also write about another condition, sensory disorder. is it widely accepted in the medical community? >> not widely embraced in terms of a diagnosis, but it manifests itself in difficulty managing sight, sound, smells, noise, pain. >> you write that he did not like to be touched. >> right. that was a theme all through his life, as early as when he used to tag along at his brother's cub scout meetings. nancy lanza told the cub scout master, don't touch him. don't casually touch him. he doesn't like it. he recoils. >> in just a few seconds left, it's obvious how much reporting went into this and how ridiculously you looked into this situation. do you come away ultimately unsatisfied? i don't know that we get the answer why. >> you know, that's just it. are we ever really going to know the why? there may be two people that know that answer, nanci and adam, and they're not here to tell us. >> it's an excellent piece of reporting. i know front line also has the documentary. thank you both for being here. frontline
